Description

Details

IMPORTANT - Please note the instructions and box of these models say they are 1/10th scale BUT they are actually 1/8th scale. If you check the dimensions you will see they are 1/8th scale and much bigger than 1/10th scale models. This is just a printing mistake and this can be verified by contacting the manufacturers directly.

The big 1/8th scale dune buggy is just like the real deal with it's 2WD setup and amazing off road capabilities thanks to the rear mounted motor and over-sized rear tyres. The front tyres have a directional tread to improve steering in off road conditions while a large rear spoiler creates extra down force for added traction on rough terrain. The model is one of the coolest looking models on the market with a fantastic choice of colour schemes, model driver and working front LED lights allowing you to have fun even in the dark!

The dune buggy is packed with features such as metal diff gears and metal transmission gears manufactured using the latest powder metallurgy method for maximum durability and will last even if you upgrade to a brushless setup later. The motor is mounted above the rear diff, just below the rear wing giving several advantages for a model like this such as increased cooling, added weight above the tyres and the extra space created on the chassis is then used for a central battery layout for better balance. Speaking of the battery, the dune buggy comes with a higher capacity than normal 7.2V 2500mAh Ni-MH pack for longer use at full power. Other features include ball bearings throughout reducing the wear and tear of the model, fully adjustable independent suspension and an adjustable slipper clutch to help protect the gears.

The buggy comes fully assembled ready to run so all you need is 4 x AAA batteries for the radio equipment. This model will suit a wide range of users from beginner to RC racing pros and just in case you crash we stock all the parts you may need as well as a range of upgrades.

The model comes with a 2.4GHz controller. These have many advantages over AM/FM transmitters:

    • Improved reliability due to less interference at this frequency range
    • Quicker more responsive control
    • Lower power consumption
    • Many models can drive together at once without need for checking frequencies and crystals

    very happy with this car!
    the battery is a little weak and takes a while to charge but i grabbed a 4600mah battery from ebay for £10 and now hold a long charge unfortunatly the charger i bought broke but i had a spare anyway, when both battery's are fully charged the power behind the rear wheels in great though i'm able to pop wheelies it's that quick, the car also has plenty of room for upgrading if you want i'd defiantly advise this for anyone looking at getting a quick and well built rc car
